Problem with the nose gear is that, it has no details, it just flat surface, so it is very
difficult to weather. So compare to main gears, it's not a wow, but this is the best I can.

Painted with Tamiya "Sky Grey" It is much lighter when just painted it, but weathered with
"Tamiya Weathering Master" color "Oil Stain" If only the hubs had more moulded details,
the highlight effect could've been better.

Main gears are easier to weather as they do have some moulded details.
As you all aviation experts know, B737 family main gear's outside hubs are painted to
match the fuselage as they are exposed even retracted. So I painted Tamiya "White"
(Gloss) then lightly weathered in center to make it look used. However the inside hubs,
I'm sure the actual planes have same color as the nose gear hub, but everytime I go to
airport, in my eyes, main gear hubs were more dirty and darker, so I used Tamiya
"Neutral Grey" then again, "TWM" "Oil Stain" These main gear turned out great.

Tamiya Grey colors are from "Sky Grey" -> "Light Grey" -> "Neural Grey" -> "Dark Grey"
order, just in case you guys wonder.

Let me tell you guys, the model looks so much better in person...
I am no photo expert so please kindly understand the quality of the pictures.
I took them with my iphone.

In general I think the model looks better, again I am no pro-builder but very picky too,
but I like it a lot. Well, better than nothing. Better than chrome shinny toy looking hubs.
BUT, you pro builders, please kindly go easy on me...
